Tegan Emerson (b. Sydney Australia)
Currently works in Berlin, Germany
Tegan Emerson has a background in archives, studying MA Museum/Curatorial Studies and a BA in Fine Arts (Photomedia) at the University of Sydney.
Since the beginning of 2019, Tegan began experimenting with handbuilding ceramics, exploring the surface of clay with textures, and diverse vessel forms.
Luxuriously tactile, with textures reminiscent of corals and moonscapes, these forms inhabit a realm somewhere over the Mediterranean Sea. Hovering between unknown aquatic depths and the gravitational pull of the moon of Atlantis, tidal shifts and lunar worship serve as an inspiration for these ceremonial forms.
Alongside her ceramic work, Tegan is an archivist and contemporary art collection specialist.
